Famous flamboyant real pianist Liberace plays talented, well-to-do pianist Anthony "Tony" Warrin, who loses his hearing in the 1955 film Sincerely Yours. Deafened by disease on the eve of a big Carnegie Hall concert, Warrin copes by using binoculars to lip-read people talking about their problems. He then anonymously helps them. The film was a total bomb at the box office.
The film is based on Jules Eckert Goodman's play "The Silent Voice," which was previously adapted into a film in 1922 and 1932.
